The Care Model for An Ecology of Care

so what does it mean to be human this is a human doesn't look like anyone we know I realize that doesn't look much like me but as I've now become familiar with this idea that this is all of that reading all of that understanding and put together in one place and I'm be able to try to take you through this little diagram very simple very simplistic diagram with X Y Z and T axis to help you to understand the key goal of this project is to understand that the mystery and the wonder and the amazingness of human beings how amazing each and every one of you are and I hope by the end of this you'll agree you are so I'm going to start with what I think is probably one of the most important of all of the axes it's the living axes it's the one that wraps up the whole lot I guess in a way and it starts with consciousness does anyone know what that is if you did you'd probably be there one of the few and only people in the world that do nobody understands consciousness hell of a lot of people are trying to figure it out I can tell you that they want to put it into a machines but consciousness is something that we all have that really SuperDuper defines us as a human being we're different to animals animals will have a different kind of consciousness and several but we are conscious and conscious on our consciousness because we have that we then become aware we have an awareness of those things that are around us we are aware are the people are the things and so it will be because we're conscious we have become aware once we become aware with meat then we have to then act we feel compelled to act even sitting there doing nothing is an action that you choose so we respond in some kind of way there's two key ways in which we like to talk about response the first one is that response ability it's a the things that we learn the ways in which we can conduct our actions our us so in the world the way in which we interact with the world that's a response ability it is simply the mechanics of responding response ability is a lot more complicated response ability is our moral and ethical stance in the world the way in which we enact ourselves in the world from a moral and ethical stance what do we judge as being right wrong and so forth a really important part to remember is that all of this takes place in in ecology and we tend to forget that our place in the ecology is just as important as every other atom in the ecology we're no more important than the beasts in the field the fish in the ocean all of those so that we you all have a part to play and every single response that we make every responsible act that we conduct has an effect like the butterfly effect on the entire ecology so we are responsible for every single thing we do and therefore responsible for our ecology that's important I think that's amazing that we actually have all of that going on every day we have experiences and these experiences cumulate over there over a many a lifetime and inform our mode of living experiences are an incredibly detailed and complicated thing in themselves what the hell is an experience it's like consciousness we all have them but we don't really know what they are we can talk about a specific instance but we can't say what is experience this is what it is at its most basic level it is about senses affect emotions cognition and context so senses are more complicated than just simply the five senses we know them predicts very simply but they also take in mysterious things such as sensing and a sense of you know that's six sense kind of spooky stuff effect is an amazing thing we all have emotions emotions incredibly complicated incredibly important the range of possible emotions is intense the emotions that I'm feeling right now are very tense but I'm but I know that I'm alive I'm living I'm a human being I can think be conscious of the fact that I am having emotions how amazing is that and I can alter those emotions perhaps with different interactions and so forth but I think I have them and they're vitally important beyond just flight-or-fight that sort of a context is a very simple thing in many ways it's just the interaction that we have between space and time in a particular way and relationships we have the space and time so in this place in the space we have a particular context and the relationship we have with it between each other and next to each other and so forth are all important and help to establish the experience so experience informs our mode of living throughout our lives and it changes the way in which we respond so it's a constant growing and building process and that's what forms our way of interacting with the world which brings us to projection this is our way of interacting world and we begin with the way in which we interact with ourself vitally important that we understand that what we have learned and all of the things that we've we've built over the years in terms of our mode of living our experience and so forth filter into and help us to understand ourself and we have to understand that first before we can actually do anything with anybody else so self is vitally important self is selfishness is actually a good thing we have to understand ourselves first before we can actually interact properly with others and if we interact with others we cannot interact with other people or other things and this helps to help establish again who our self is we know our self through our interactions with others with if there was nobody else on the planet without us we wouldn't probably know who the hell the self was so we desperately need other people so self others and then the world so here right now your world each person's world and my world are intersecting so in this projection I am projecting myself to you interacting with you the other using these others here to create a meeting of our worlds so that's fairly important so it's a kind of a layer layered effect we have context and immediate experience we have the worlds in which we engage in the Greater ecology in which we all live this is a kind of kinetic contextual story so lastly but not the not the least so I can tell you is time we understand time ever watch you have top locks and numbers and so for but that is a technology it's not actually an essence of our life we are born we're going to die because we have consciousness we know we're going to die we don't know when and that so important because it changes the flavor of their entire lives if we knew when we were going to die or that we weren't going to die we would change exactly everything we did so we need to know that we're going to die we don't need to know when you wants to know that but it's very important that we have this understanding that but our life is going to be a continuum because the key point from this exit is that we know we have time whatever amount that is we're conscious and aware that we have time so we have a responsibility then to see what will we do at that time it's it's totally compelling your conscious you're aware you respond you've got time what am I going to do with it we talk about time spent or spending time and that's because we don't get any back once it's gone it's gone so we have to be very careful what we do with it and you know we talk about wasting time and all these sorts of things so timers are incredibly valuable part of being a human and as part of understanding what a human is that we have to deal with time but this is a human in the process of being and this is care

One thought on “The Care Model for An Ecology of Care

  1. The Ecology Of Care: EoC is an important concept, as it provide a common framework and language for the relationships and interaction in communities that are driven by, or work with care. Working e.g. with assistive and rehab technology with an engineering background, I have intuitively and successfully sought partnerships with health professionals and humanists. The EoC framework has made it much easier to discuss, grasp and plan the roles of participants in this trans-diciplinary environment. I am very impressed by the work behind EoC, and recommend this presentation as "food for thought" for everyone venturing into the complicated world of trans-diciplinary projects and groups.
